Sholing 1-1 Winchester City

Boatmen made it 3 pre-season games unbeaten against opposition from the Southern League with a draw against Winchester City.  Sholing had the best of the first half, with Wort going close twice & Roundell smashing a shot just over.  Winchester had more of the ball in a second half of limited goal mouth action, but two well taken goals. The visitors went in front on 68 mins when Bailey curled in an effort, but Sholing equalised on 80 mins when youngster, Bradley Targett, chested down a ball in the area and finished well past the advancing keeper - Match Report & Photos

Sholing shirt sponsorship draw will now take place on Monday at the AGM

Sholing 2-1 Thatcham Town

Another good quality pre-season friendly saw the Boatmen defeat the current FA Vase holders, Thatcham.  Game was played at a high tempo and fairly competitive, but it was Sholing who edged the win thanks to two high quality first half goals. Dan Mason reacted to a flick on with a first time lob over the keeper from 20 yards, then strike partner, Lee Wort hit a low shot from fully 30 yards that arrowed into the bottom corner.  Thatcham pulled a goal back in the second half and both teams went on to hit the upright in an entertaining match - Match Report & Photos
